The Celtic Knot Conference 2017 is the first Wikipedia Language conference organised in collaboration between the University of Edinburgh and Wikimedia UK focusing on supporting Celtic & Indigenous Languages.

The main objective for Celtic Knot 2017 is the coming together of practitioners in the same room at same time; strengthening the bonds of those working to support language communities into a 'knot' and leading into action. Attendees can expect to learn about and discuss innovative approaches to open education, open knowledge and open data that support and grow language communities.

The conference aims to:
  • Showcase innovative approaches to open education, open knowledge and open data that support and grow Celtic and Indigenous language communities.
  • Identifying ways in which our cultural heritage can be not just preserved but, as living languages, engaged with and expanded on so as to enrich the linguistic map of the British Isles and beyond through a cross-pollination of ideas & knowledge exchange.
  • Building bridges between communities, this event seeks diverse participants who will share their practice and discover fruitful new collaborations as a result.
